ACME Group has announced its foray into the wind power sector with a 50 MW grid-connected wind power project in Gujarat.
The company was awarded the project through a tariff-based competitive bidding process for electricity procurement from grid-connected wind power projects. The group has signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited (GUVNL). The project is to be commissioned within 24 months from the signing of the PPA. The electricity from this project will help to light up nearly 6 million homes. This is a significant milestone as the company gears up to provide solar-wind hybrid and renewable energy round the clock power. Additionally, ACME’s 2,600 MW of solar power projects are in various stages of construction and commissioning in Rajasthan. It is also setting up an integrated pilot project for green hydrogen and green ammonia plant at Bikaner in Rajasthan.
